"One of the most exciting parts of my job is writing about great startups and
startup culture. On TheBeach Meets TheStreet, we dig into the process of
taking a company from idea to enterprise," says Rocco Pendola, Director of
Social Media, TheStreet. "Our first conversation, with Pandora Internet Radio
co-founder Tim Westergen, sets the tone for the series well - here's a company
hatched in a San Francisco studio apartment that now owns a spot on
practically everyone's iPhone."

TheBeach Meets TheStreet, produced in conjunction with Media 11:11, is
available on TheStreet.com every Tuesday and will focus mainly on companies in
the area known as Silicon Beach, Southern California's Santa Monica/Venice
corridor along the Pacific Coast, with occasional spotlights on startup firms
of interest outside the region.
"Media 11:11 is a startup focused on helping people get their content out
there- it's a natural progression to create a video series focusing on
emerging and established Startup founders & CEO's, who are trying to get their
visions turned into reality. With Rocco Pendola and TheStreet, we have the
ideal personality and platform to showcase TheBeach," says Manoj Rao, CEO
The second episode, airing on February 19, will feature Cyrus Farudi,
co-founder of Capsule. Watch a preview of the interview here.
"With limited national coverage of the Silicon Beach business scene, our
advertising partners will have a truly unique opportunity to connect with an
audience of entrepreneurs and startup investors alike," says James R. Freiman,
Senior Vice President of Business Development & Strategy at TheStreet. "As
video advertising continues to become an integral part of media plans this
series is a great avenue for our partners to get out in front of potentially
the next big business idea."
